A Quiet Getaway
Submitted: April 24, 2012
Stayed: April 2012
Our family of five really enjoyed this house. The kids liked the loft as a "retreat", but caution is needed for younger children to get up and down the ladder. This house is definitely off the beaten path (don't count on google maps to get your exactly to your destination - it was close however). The town of Joshua Tree is 20 minutes away, 29 palms is about 25-30 minutes. If you are looking for a place to stay to access the National Park daily, then there are definitely closer rentals, but if you are looking for a low key, quiet retreat in the desert, this definitely works. We played horseshoes, rode our bikes around the property and laid out on the patio and listened to pandora on the outdoor speaker system.
Highlights: sunsets, mountain views, quiet, little traffic, coyote sighting, indoor/outdoor speaker system, fire pit in back, wifi access, large patio, good/easy communication with property manager
Considerations: Some wires still hanging (not finished upstairs), dirt road access, definitely off the beaten path, one of a kind remodeled home.
Our family enjoyed our stay, it just depends on what type of vacation you are interested in.
